It's Been Good

This is my 90th blog and my last blog on NVS! It's been good. There's nothing wrong, it's just time to move on. I enjoyed the journey but I'm home now, and there's a lot of work to do at home.
I remember my final year at UJ, I had gotten a taxi cab to Modern Market, and, either Luke, a friend, joined the cab or I met him inside when I entered, I'm not too sure,... it's been a while. Anyway, after the usual greetings Luke asked me a question that had always "set me straight", he asked; "Oluwato, I just wanted to know why you hated me these four years, why you never shared the gospel with me? I've always known that you were a Christian, but if I had died these past years, I would have gone to hell."
I ran through the archives of my brain and realised that he was right. You see, Luke and I did not have the same major although we took some combined classes throughout my stay in UJ. I thought I had evangelized everyone that came across my path. I was known by the "SU" slogan, plus, I had godly pride, when I preached, people listened. Some responded favorably, some with scorn. It didn't matter, I preached anyway, I valued the human soul and was grateful for the sacrifice Jesus made, so I was going to tell as many as I could.
One of my colleagues had died in the first year and the only comfort I had about his eternal soul was the fact that he came to me a week after I had witnessed to him, that the night before he had given it all to God. So in my mind, I had done what was required of me, but I hadn't, I forgot Luke, and I'm sure he wasn't the only one I unknowingly overlooked.
So I apologised and found out that he had just gotten saved and I vowed not to leave a stone unturned. So that's what I'm doing with this last blog.
For NVS Non-Christians: My message is simple. Jesus Christ paid the price of your sin(s) so that you wouldn't have to. Simply believe that he did and God will give you eternal salvation because you believed in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and made Him your Lord (Boss, Savior, Master). Please see Romans 10:9-10. If you do not come to God through Jesus Christ, you will go to hell. See John 3:18. Study the bible personally. If you have questions, feel free to PM me. This world is not all there is. I am free of your blood!
For NVS Christians: It's easy to know that type of Christian that I am. I'm the "Messiah talmidim" type. That means disciple of Christ/Messiah type. I am only committed to Jesus Christ, not to a church or doctrine. I have stepped on some toes, and many have stepped on mine. To those who still hurt, I request forgiveness and I have forgiven all that hurt me. I am glad for the godly fellowship I have with similar Christians. I promise to keep in touch.
To my NVS Male Admirers: Thanks for taking the "risk" and initiative in admiring me. I believe you are all the better for it. No, I am not engaged yet, but as you all know, I can only marry one man and my standards are godly.
To ALL NVS Members: I will not be as active as before, again, it's because I have a lot of work to do at home. It's been good and shalom (peace) to all.
